Kings Of Leon drummer Nathan Followill has said that seeing actor Bill Murray dancing to their 2005 song 'Taper Jean Girl' at a show last night (January 30) in New York was a "career highlight".

The drummer took to Twitter after the band played the Highline Stages in Manhattan as part of FOX Sports 1's pre-Super Bowl party, the Super Bash. The Super Bowl takes place this Sunday (February 2) and will see a half time show from Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Nathan Followill wrote of last night's Kings Of Leon show:



Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul was also at the gig and was equally as overcome by the presence of Murray, tweeting: "I'm at Kings of Leon in NYC and Bill Murray is standing behind me. What should I do? Kiss him? Tackle him? Confess my love? #billmurray".

Kings Of Leon play a run of huge UK gigs this summer, starting at the home of Newcastle United, St James' Park, on May 31, then playing shows at Sheffield Motorpoint Arena on June 17, Manchester Phones 4U Arena on June 18 and Milton Keynes Bowl, with support from Haim, on June 22.

The Tennessee rockers released their sixth album 'Mechanical Bull' in September 2013. It became their fourth Number One album in the UK.

Kings Of Leon will play:

Newcastle St James' Park (May 31)
Sheffield Motorpoint Arena (June 17)
Manchester Phones 4U Arena (18)
Milton Keynes Bowl (22)
